    'Diversity Consultant' Says White Paper May Make Students Racist

    From the Wicked Witch of the West in "The Wizard of Oz" to Meg, the good witch from the "Meg and Mog" children's books, witches have always dressed in black.

    But their traditional attire has now come in for criticism from equality experts who claim it could send a negative message to toddlers in nursery and lead to racism.

    Instead, teachers should censor the toy box and replace the pointy black hat with a pink one, while dressing fairies, generally resplendent in pale pastels, in darker shades.

    Another staple of the classroom - white paper - has also been questioned by Anne O'Connor, an early years consultant who advises local authorities on equality and diversity.

    Children should be provided with paper other than white to drawn on and paints and crayons should come in "the full range of flesh tones," reflecting the diversity of the human race, according to the former teacher.

    Miss O'Connor should get herself a boyfriend that keeps her time occupied or at least start putting less whiskey into her coffee, regardless of how Irish her forebears are.

    Yes, clothing tends to tell a lot about people, but she's basically saying that toddlers will see some racism in any funeral procession because they wear black? And what about the pink pointy hat, will that not lead to discrimination against the gay kids, or on a "more serious" note, breed sexism as it tar-brushes every other baby girl with the brush of dressing like a witch?

    You've got to laugh at the contradictions that undeniably come up in their ridiculous attempts of social engineering. Racism in toddlers as young as two? Well, perhaps a showcase that it's a fairly natural defense-mechanism and thus a positive thing to see it kindled in toddlers as young as two?
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Well, personally I prefer ivory paper, so I do not see how the children would be "helped" by not using white paper.

    Oh wow, thank God somebody gets it! Yes, let's ignore the flash mobs and race riots and attack the real problem; color schemes in children's books.

    I hope this is a joke, it's stupid as hell frankly.


    Maybe she should get a cat or something.
    Proud to be Germanic.

    Even though my ancestry is English, Germany is my favorite country.

    Finally, staff should be prepared to be economical with the truth when asked by pupils what their favourite colour is and, in the interests of good race relations, answer "black" or "brown".
    If children develop positive associations with dark colours, the greater the likelihood that the attitude will be generalised to people, it says.
    The advice is based on an “anti-bias” approach to education which developed in the United States as part of multiculturalism.
    Funny 'anti-bias' approach that actively tries to instill a bias in these children.

    It challenges prejudices such as racism, sexism and ageism through the whole curriculum and teaches children about tolerance and respect and to critically analyse what they are taught and think.
    "People who are feeling defensive can say 'well there's nothing wrong with white paper', but in reality there could be if you don't see yourself reflected in the things around you. “As an early years teacher, the minute you start thinking, 'well actually, if I give everyone green paper, what happens’, you have a teaching potential.
    I don't have the same skin color as a sheet of white paper.

    “People might criticise this as political correctness gone mad. But it is because of political correctness we have moved on enormously.
    At least they know how their nonsense is being perceived by normal people.

    However, recent research by Professor Lord Winston provides evidence that children as young as four can hold racist views.
    The horror. It's amusing how they try to fight nature and vilify the normal behavior of toddlers.

    I actually can't believe that they're being serious. It looks like they are, but then again it also looks like a satire. I cannot resolve this contradiction. I guess I'm living in the twilight zone.

    We came across some of this colouring paper in a toy shop a few months ago, along with some 'Multicultural Career Dolls'. The dolls were a clear and obvious attempt at brainwashing - the paper though really just seemed like a desperately pathetic attempt at drawing the race card at every and any turn. To any normal person it was just coloured paper - but the packaging made it clear this paper was racially aware, and the people using had better be mindful of it!

    Utterly ridiculous.

    Political correctness where it does not belong and sure as hell is not wanted.

    Who the hell does she think will become a racist because of a sheet of paper? it seems as if she is the one with race on the brain.
